When Yvonne is taking the Doctor and Jackie to the Sphere Room, there is a sign opposite the door that has the words "Torchwood Institute". In the next shot where you can see the corridor from inside the Sphere Chamber, the sign has disappeared. It reappears again when Rose is going into the Sphere Chamber, but this time it has directions to the Reception, Canteen and Lever Room as well as "Torchwood Institute". It also disappears again when you see the corridor from inside the Chamber. See more »
After two of the worst "Doctor Who" episodes shown since the show's revival("Love & Monsters" and "Fear Her"), the writers deliver an outstanding episode. The instalments set in contemporary London are usually fairly tame in sci-fi terms. The imaginative concepts and designs used in episodes like "The Impossible Planet" are of course harder to replicate in a real-world setting, and so I never expect a mind-blowing episode whenever we see the TARDIS appear within walking distance of Jackie Tyler's flat. With "Army of Ghosts", things change. The show's creators manage to make this present-day episode into one of the most unpredictable and truly mesmerising yet.
